Family Residence

Family Residence

The Salvation Army has offered refuge for women and children seeking safe housing in Houston since the 1940s. Always located on McGowen Street in Midtown Houston, the original facility served not only as a shelter for mothers and their children, but also a boarding house for your women. Its current iteration, Family Residence, opened in 1984 and continues to offer shelter for women and children today. 

Family Residence offers sanctuary and a life-changing program to homeless single women and families. In a nurturing environment, adults and children participate in a full schedule of classes and counseling designed to address the underlying causes of homelessness and facilitate healing, thereby providing the necessary tools to return to independence.
